I’m sure by now everyone reading this has heard a great deal about continuous delivery, which I’ll refer to as CD from here on. In short, you do it to accelerate the process of software delivery – which means you can see the value of coding more quickly.
What is the optimal IT spending strategy for a fast-growing startup? If you're Brian Morgan, CTO at Catalant, a Boston-based platform startup that delivers business expertise on demand, IT investments are dictated by what the company is trying to achieve, period.
Before technology began to advance as it does now, it only seemed to take one single breakthrough to change the world. Whether it was the minicomputer in the 70’s, the PC in the 80’s or the internet in the 90’s, each one of these individual components played a large part in how the world has developed into the what it is now. But moving forward no longer is it just one technology that will change the world, but six, and they are cloud technology, digital labor, consumer experience, internet of services, continuous delivery, and new operating models. Let’s take a closer look at each of those vital world-changing components:
This webinar is coming up quick! Wednesday, October 12, 1pm EST
In this webinar, we'll explore the practices and tools required to run Jenkins inside a Swarm cluster. We'll go beyond a simple deployment. We'll explore how to create a continuous deployment process. We'll set up multiple clusters. One will be dedicated to testing and the other for production. We'll see how to accomplish zero-downtime deployments, what to do in case of a failover, how to run services at scale, how to monitor the systems, and how to make it heal itself. We'll explore the processes that will allow us to run the clusters on a laptop as well as on different cloud providers.
The examples will set up Jenkins master in a way that it is fault tolerant and create a dynamic cluster for running agents. Once Jenkins is up and running, we'll use Pipeline to define a continuous deployment flow for one of the services.
It seems that the Internet is bustling with online communities. No matter the job or the skills, there are online forums, message boards, and blogs dedicated to exactly your position. But what about DevOps? Where are all of those guys hanging out?
No software architect can resist the temptation to talk about their experience with microservices. We launched an interview series with experts who talked about the benefits and challenges of microservices, when people should not use them and what impact they have on an organization. Our third interviewee is Daniel Bryant, Chief Scientist at OpenCredo and speaker at the upcoming JAX London.
There’s a number of steps between applications and websites being conceived and being finally released — design, programming, QA, and deployment. Let’s close the gap between the development and operations cycle, and review some of the practices of the DevOps movement.
